Tiji Festival in Upper Mustang Dates for the year 2024 have been already confirmed!  Join us as we explore this rare and ancient Local Tibetan Buddhist Ritual at Lo Manthang, the capital town of once independent Mustang Kingdom in the Himalaya. The Tiji Festival brings together locals and tourists alike in a celebration by prayers, poojas and traditional Tibetan Monks’ dance. Learn how the ritual is performed, how it serves to bring harmony to the communities in which it takes place, and why it is an important event held every year. Discover how this festival has been passed down through the generations and how visitors and locals are able to experience its beauty and power. The event is a rare chance to capture ancient traditional ritual and cultural aspects of the Himalaya.

The three days’ Tiji ceremony begins with a procession of Lamas carrying colorful Buddhist flags throughout the town on their way to a temple where they perform puja (rituals) and chant mantras to ward off evil spirits and restore balance within society.
